The recipe below puts canned tomatoes to good use—the fire-roasted variety in particular. If you haven't tried them, you must as they lend a welcome smoky flavor for this time of year. And because the recipe is meatless, it's perfect for those observing Ash Wednesday, the official start of Lent. A splash of vodka and heavy cream finish off the hearty sauce, making it great for cold March days, and parents thinking beyond Chef Boyardee. Recipe Source: Relish Mag

Quick and easy. Pureed with a hand blender before adding the cream. Only change I'd make would be to use two cans of fire-roasted tomatoes next time to make sure that flavor is pronounced, and add a couple of cloves of garlic after sauteeing the carrot. Thanks for sharing!
